I can honestly say that none of that was there when I shipped that, but noone will believe me anyway so let me make a statement.
I apologize for people recieving damage to there guns. Whether you want to believe it or not I had no idea any of these problems existed, and can only attribute it to shipping damage. Barracuda; I really wish you had of come here to Barrie to pick these guns up like agreed upon earlier so that you could have viewed them first hand to verify my statements of condition. The cocking handle was on the gun and fully functional when it was shipped and there was no cracking of any kind.
